Regarding "The trusted family member was my uncle and he made 11 million dollars in real estate and got caught by the FBI." I would suggest that something other than making $11M in RE was the reason the FBI was involved. Perhaps it was the method he employed to make the money, not the fact that he made $11M.
And you bought them a house, in their name, and they pay you rent? Maybe you are more like your uncle than you think.
